NBA Playoffs: Conference Finals Game 1 Final Score: Spurs 105, Grizzlies 83

That really, really sucked.

Loss haiku time? (Hang on, I'm trying to stop throwing up.)

Z-Bo went missing
Davis, Leuer, Daye, Wroten:
Impending blowout.

Yeah, loss haiku time. The Grizzlies have now played in three playoff series this season and they've lost all three Game 1's by a combined 45 points. If you're bad at math, that's an average of 15 points. That means they've come out and been flat-out terrible in all three Game 1's.

So today wasn't all that surprising. The Grizzlies have used Game 1 to "feel out" what was going on and try to adjust to it. That's great and all, but the Spurs aren't a team that you want to give a 1-0 advantage in any series, much less the Western Conference Finals. The Grizzlies remain 4 wins away from the Finals, and they let the Spurs get to 3 wins away.

Let's see those loss haikus now. Unfortunately, that's pat of this business, I'm afraid. We'll have a full recap up later.

Pounding The Rock has the Spurs side of the story.
